Insider Tips For Property Photography

One of the most crucial steps in the process of selling your property is listing captivating, high quality photographs of your home.

This will most likely be the first thing that potential buyers see and can have a huge impact of their attraction to your property.

First impressions are important when it comes to real estate; So make sure to follow our insider tips and tricks for how best to photograph your house for sale.

Hire a professional

We recommend hiring a professional property photographer, as they will already have the correct equipment and expert knowledge on how to best photograph your home.

Clean and Declutter

Before your house is photographed, it is essential that it is spick and span. You can deep clean the house yourself, or hire a cleaner, but make sure that you scrub every inch of your property!

Decluttering is just as important as cleaning, as too much clutter in your house will make the rooms appear smaller and more cramped. Remove all unnecessary furniture pieces and hide all appliances.

It is also recommended that you de-personalise your house. If the property you’re selling has been lived in, it will likely have photographs of friends and family, knick knacks and personal items. In order to make your house appeal to potential buyers, you must allow them to picture themselves living in your home;

This means de-personalising, adding some simplistic, yet sophisticated artwork, nice pillows and blankets, and some plant life in order to spruce up your home.

Highlight special features

If you have any strong assets, or special features in your home, make sure to emphasize them. This can be done in both the staging and photography process. Arranging furniture and adding bursts of colour can draw the eye to the best parts of your house.

If you have a stunning marble counter-top, arrange some beautiful flowers in a vase and place it upon the counter. If you have a pool or a spa to feature, make sure that the water is sparkling clear and clean.

Prepare the exterior

In many ways, the exterior of your property is just as important as the interior. Make sure you put in the same amount of effort into styling the outside of your house.

If you have a garden that’s already filled with plants, make sure that they’re properly maintained on the days of photography. If your garden is bare you can do some simple planting of seasonal flowers to make the exterior more appealing!

Taking breathtaking photographs that capture your homes essence and potential is a brilliant way to draw in buyers. Get it wrong, and a bad impression could turn people off your property.

Regardless of if you hire a professional or do it yourself, make sure you take the photography process seriously, as it’s one of the most important steps in selling your home.
